Here are some of the ways that we can help:
What is the Difference Between Home Care and Home Health Care?
With home care, professional caregivers provide seniors across the Austin area with support and assistance to age in place. This includes help with bathing and dressing, mobility, transportation, light housekeeping, meal preparation and medication reminders. It also includes companionship and conversation.
Home health care, on the other hand, is usually provided by a nurse, physical therapist or some other kind of practitioner. Its purpose is to monitor your loved one’s health, prescribe new medications or treatments or design exercise or nutrition plans. It’s typically less frequent than home care and offered on a short-term basis.
What is Non-Medical Care?
At FirstLight Home Care of Austin, we offer non-medical care to seniors. This simply means we’re focused on improving your loved one’s quality of life, whether it’s helping them live more independently or remain safe in the place they call home.
We provide support to the elderly, as well as those who are disabled, diagnosed with dementia, chronically ill or recovering after surgery. We also offer other specialized services, like brain health and travel companion programs, as well as respite care for family caregivers.
What are the Advantages of Home Care vs. Care in a Senior Living Community?
Home care allows your loved one to stay in the place where they feel most comfortable. When they’re in familiar surroundings, they’ll be happier and more at peace. They’ll also be able to maintain a consistent routine and still get support and care tailored to their preferences.
There are times, however, when an assisted living community is best for an individual. When this is the case, FirstLight Home Care of Austin can still help your senior loved one. We’ll provide extra support, whether it’s transportation, companionship, running errands or in other ways. Our caregivers are available to make life easier and more enjoyable for your loved one.
